    What do you still want to learn about quilting?

    Wow, I am a beginner so I have lots to learn. I love surfing the net to find cool links, read articles and watch videos.

    Hand quilting. Someone taught me a while back, went home, got frustrated and didn't get back into it. One day, I want to try again tho.

    which technique there are several. Needle turn I think is probably the most common I've heard discussed.

    Besides everything. It's all so fascinating and creative. But to narrow it. My interest is peaked by paper piecing. I've got a ways to go before I dive into that however.

    1. Curve piecing. My next quilt I have designed with have curves in it.

    2. Paper piecing. I got a taste with my last quilt but I want to take it further. My next quilt I designed has curves and is all paper pieced - should be good challenge for me.

    3. Master machine quilting. Right now I can barely do a straight line let alone any designs.

    4. Learn how to hand quilt successfully on a frame. Right now I only use a hoop and because that is my comfort zone.

    I am cetain I will think of more

    FMQ - I am so bad, I don't even suck at it yet. "Sucking" would be an improvement.

    well, whatever comes before the pre-sucking stage, that's where I'm at. I haven't even tried :shock:
    So far, been able to wing a few things with machine stitches and crosshatching...no 'free-spirit' here.
    Mad, you got it going on, so the only thing holding you back is practice. :-D

    Long Arm Quilting. I can do well on my machine, but every time I touch a long arm I look like I was learning to roller blade (which I can't do either)

    I doubt I'll ever stop learning, and I count a quilt project as a success if I learned something from it. Even if it's all messed up, if I learned something from it, I count it as a success.

    I have machine quilted a crib size but want to do larger quilt, so I guess the next size would be twin.

    FMQ. I am so uninformed about the subject, I am not even sure what the tension should be on my Janome machine.

    I keep saying, I'll start when I finish this other quilt I am "hand-quilting". I am nervous and scared also.

    I'd really love to learn curved piecing --- no matter how many videos or tutes I watch, it just doesn't work for me. And, FMQ--- count me as another that wishes I was good enough to suck at it. I seem to lose the connection with my machine whenever I drop the feed dogs (and I even have a fabric mover!!!).
